Marian Gaborik Will Not Play In Sochi

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Columbus Blue Jackets forward Marian Gaborik, who in January was named to Slovakia’s 25-man roster for the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, has not been medically cleared to participate and will miss the games due to a broken collarbone suffered vs. the Philadelphia Flyers on December 21.

“Marian has worked extremely hard and done everything possible to rehabilitate his injury and return to the ice with the hope of representing his country in Sochi,” said Blue Jackets General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen. “We share his deep disappointment that he will not be able to do so, but are optimistic that he will be fully recovered very soon.”

“I’m extremely disappointed that I won’t be able to play for Slovakia at the Olympic Games but understand the decision is the right one for my recovery and for the national team,” said Gaborik. “I have been lucky and proud to represent my country at two Olympic Games and other international tournaments and look forward to doing so again in the future.”
